there on the campaign trail? >> reporter: you know, i asked her about ann romney's claim when ann romney pressed back about her own husband's critics and ann romney said campaigning is hard. i said does she share that sentiment. here was mrs. obama's response. >> ann romney recently said about the critics of her husband -- to her husband's critics that running for president is hard. do you sympathize with that? >> you know, the campaign experience is unique for everyone. everyone comes to this and experiences it differently. for me i really enjoy campaigning. i think barack and i we both get energy from it because when you live in washington, sometimes you get isolated from the rest of the country. and this is a time when we get out and we can remember just how decent people are. i come across people i don't care what political party they come from, they are hopeful. they're happy to see you. they're willing to listen. and it's good to be reminded of that. when you get out on the campaign trail. so i get energy from it. and i always have. and i've always said that. it's, you know, i never thought, yo
that i wanted to remember in my head. ann romney said when mitt romney goes out for one of these debates, he writes dad at the top of the -- kind of touching seriously, i thought. it was nice. but i would immediately write down the five or six key points they wanted to be sure to try to work in somehow. because you can't take any prepared materials in there with you, but you can remember the things that you walk on stage with, and get them down in a hurry. >> cenk: or if you can't remember them, you write them in your head like sarah palin did. >> al gore: michelle obama -- this is their 20th wedding anniversary and she said she was going to make him write on his palm love you honey or something. >> eliot: this is a great way for mitt romney to show a human. >> jennifer: yeah. >> cenk: jennifer did you have zingers? >> jennifer: absolutely. i wanted to ask the vice president looking at these backgrounds and podiums, doesn't it make your stomach clench? >> al gore: no, i found them exciting and enjoyable in the same way i played a football game. >> jennifer: interesti
think that clip that you played of ann romney saying i love women is so illustrative because the romney campaign wants to just assert, we're for women without having any sort of specifics to back it up, any sort of policies that would show that they would help women, that they would be sensitive to these issues. so you can't just come out and say, i love women. you have to back it up and show what the you're going to do for the american people that makes sense. i personally don't think that there's anything he could do at this point to truly close that gap. >> and he better not point and say stop it, because that doesn't work either. >> joy reid and crist yal ball, as always, brilliant women. wonderful. tomorrow we are taking the show on the road with the ktz broadcasting live from the university of denver, site of the first of three presidential debates. our special coverage begins at 4:00 followed by chris matthews, of course, and "hardball" at 5:00. >>> next, why are billionaires so angry with the president? stay with us. >> we have the mandates and the moral authority to make things
mitt romney's body man tweeted this photo of the candidate and ann romney going to the debate site. the two holding hands. you got to love that. now, remember when president obama himself said he'd be held accountable for not fixing the economy in this first term? remember that? >> we're starting to make some progress but there's still going to be some pain out there. if i don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition. >> others say the advantage tonight is going to lie with the challenger when it comes to this political debate, in this case an election about the economy that might be very true. here now robert shrum and dick armey. bob shrum, we talked a lot about mitt romney and what we know and what we don't know but i don't know anything about what president obama would do in a second term. he says he wants more four years. four more years for, what bob shrum? i can't figure it out. >> i think you'll find out a lot about it tonight. i think he's sent a whole raft of bills on jobs and infrastructure. if you want it look at this debate analy
similarities between obama's health-care bill ann romney's health-care bill. can you give this a big similarity and a big difference? guest: the ann romney bill, mass. health reform -- the romney bill, mass. health insurance, and said we need to expand health insurance by making sure everybody has health insurance, and once that is in place, we will start looking at the cost of health care. the discussion came out because there is a theory that health- care costs are a two-headed beast. we have this enormously growing health-care industry, and costs are rising. people are living longer. the care that we get down is really expensive. mri machines, arthroscopes -- all of the other things that you expect when you go in with a headache, you want somebody to do a scan of your brain instead of just telling you to take two aspirin. so, there is a massive increase in health care cost that is eating up more and more of our government's budget. at the same time, there is a growing number of people that are uninsured. it could be one in the same. they could not afford the insurance because the health- car
. obama and ann romney. [applause] one of the great privileges of working for the commission on presidential debates is to work with jim lehrer. this is the 12th time he will moderate a debate. i'd like to introduce him now. [applause] >> let me be the very last to welcome you to this very important event. show of hands -- have many of you have been in this hall before? you know the rules. absolute silence. for those of you who watched on television, you know the rules are different for these events. in the early days when it restarted addressing the audience of a hall, i would say, ok, you make noise. hiss and boo and applaud and cheer. i will make you stand up and camille you in front of the whole world. i do not do that anymore. -- and humiliate you in front of the whole world. i do not do that anymore. you know the drill. you know how important this event is. it is important because it is about millions of people watching this event tonight. they are watching to make a decision on the most important decision the citizens of this country can make. it behooves all of you an
.s.a.. thank you. host: ann, democratic line. caller: hello. host: go ahead. caller: i would ask mitt romney why he says he is for the middle-class and when he was governor of massachusetts one of the first things he wanted to do was close down all the community colleges. that was what most of the middle class and lower class could afford. i do not think that he realizes what it means to be middle- class. he has no clue as to the finances of american people. he is so out of touch, i do not think he would do anything to help this country. host: let's take a look at the recent campaign ads that have come out. first, a new mitt romney advertisement. [video clip] >> you will pay higher taxes for government-run health care. their plan includes $1 trillion in taxes on the middle class. mitt romney and common sense conservatives will cut taxes on the middle-class. we cannot afford four more years. >> i am mitt romney and i approve this message. host: we will take a look at a moment -- take a look in a moment at the latest obama advertisement. this message -- host: now, the president obama advertise
. by the way, ann romney yesterday did an interview where she talked a little about mitt's, what does he when he takes the stage. as soon as he gets up on stage, he takes off his watch and he puts it on the podium and then on a piece of paper, he writes dad. she says that's amazing because he loves his dad, respects his dad, doesn't want to do anything that would not make his father proud. i love the fact that mitt does that, so he writes that word, dad. he'll do that tonight on that stage. >> brian: i remember the question he was asked, what would your father do, now that you got the nomination? he said be bold. so if he wants to take that, that's really the philosophy he should bring in tonight's. >> martha: good point. he also says he looks into the crowd to make eye contact with her and to see where she is and to sort of have a moment of connection, which i think everyone has things that sort of ground them and help them to relax and be focused and it was interesting to get a little insight into what their ritual is. we'll see how that works out tonight's. and also we've got several new p
? is ann romney there? are their children there? >> both candidates' wives will be here. but not yet. the first lady, sort of funny, the president has been having his debate prep in nevada. the first lady is holding a campaign event in nevada. but they're at separate locations and will be flying to denver separately and meeting up here for the first time. she'll see him before the debate, but it is hardly, i think, the kind of date any couple would want for their 20th wedding anniversary. she did say she expects to -- he'll make it up to her at another time. >> i guess a presidential debate is a pretty decent excuse. jessica yellin for us in denver. jessica, we'll look for you later. thank you so much. >>> cnn's live coverage of tonight's debate begins at 7:00 eastern. >>> call it the debate before the debate. we're about to show you what each candidate will probably say tonight in his own words. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> the woman who battled mitt romney ten years ago joins me live on how their debate gave romney a major boost. >>> plus -- >> middle class has been bur
. [indiscernible] i think ann romney was quoted the other day about the criticism that her husband is getting. i got a lot of the males -- emails on our blog varying from good for her to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. i can't imagine watching my husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? thinkingthat they are it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a
there now showing mitt romney trailing president obama are a hoax. cooked up to propel the democratic turnout machine. with me to try to get through this is joy ann reid, managing eder to of thegrio.com. and political analyst and columnist the great eugene robinson. eugene, we have grown up watching basically back and forth. ever since ike and truman, it's brn basically an eight-year thing. you get an eight-year run and people turn you out and try the other party. the republicans, this is my contention, have this almost, i don't mean it literally, monarchist notion, that somehow the executive plongs to them. >> they do like the executive, don't they? >> it's kind of part of what i call republican mythology that this is a center right country, therefore someone from the center right or further right should be president of this country. now, i think that's silly on two grounds. number one, center is center, right, by deaf significance. >> they're describing that 1950s. >> exactly. >> number two, i think while it's true more people say they're conservative an liberal, i think people say
have right now is businesses -- ann makes reference to mitt romney's remarks and every american wants to do better in the world but it is awful hard when the government -- the size of the government goes up by $1 trillion in four years and the debt of the -- more than the debt of the nation when i entered congress in 1995 and the only platform the president has for economic recovery is limiting tax deductions for retraining for companies that may be moving out of the country and raising taxes on small businesses which of the source of most of the economic vitality of the state and not to reduce the deficit but to pay for more government. where does it all end? >> moderator: where did the two of you see eye to eye on the role of government and business working together to boost overall prosperity for everybody? what do you think? kuster: this is supposed to be debate. [talking over each other] >> moderator: everybody -- [talking over each other] kuster: congress acting as though the government is the entire problem. the government is not the entire problem. i don't believe the governme
